During the height of his career, when the studio system lorded it over in Philippine movies, Oscar Moreno was one of the top leading men of the era, having appeared in a good number of films. Botong Francisco, meanwhile, dabbled successfully in production design, designing costumes and props for the fantastic costume epics that these studios churned out, executing many a sketch -- presented here is one fine example, a rendering of Moreno in full medieval attire.
